Punchline needs a new zip-up hoodie design. Can you do it? Read on for the details.
Design for PunchlineI can't imagine how many aspiring graphic designers/artists follow this website. Without you our music scene would have no look. It would still probably have bad hair, just no inky side printed V-necks. Punchline is in need of a new zip up hooded sweatshirt. 2-3 colors + the color of the sweatshirt. We are open to any ideas. Winner gets $50 and a copy of Just Say Yes (Just Say Yes is our new album, come on). You have one week! Post your ideas in this thread and also send to steve@modernshortstories.net.

Singer/songwriter Justin Oliver has signed to Modern Short Stories, who recently released Punchline's Just Say Yes. An update is below.
UpdateHis car was once hit by a train. He's written and recorded 200 songs, most of which he'll never let anyone hear. He doesn't do myspace so I have to do it for him. Far enough outside the shadow of Boston, he is lost at sea in the corner of America. One of the biggest inspirations to me in my writing, which isn't exactly something that has flattered the masses, but nonetheless my lifes work. I've learned it all from listening to him. His new album will be released in early '09 on Modern Short Stories. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Justin...
